by Chad Kymal,Martin Hettwer,Michael B. Checketts published on December 28, 2023

The ISO 9000, ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 standard changes by the TC 176 and TC 207 are in full swing. The ISO 9001 design document and ISO 14001 Working Draft were recently voted on by TC 176 and TC 207. Both of these standards form the basis of the changes that will directly change many other standards including AS9100, IATF 16949, VDA 6.3, and ISO 13485.

One of the sector standards is already revised and will be released before the ISO 9001 revision, one standard will wait until ISO 9001 is revised, and another will not change at all. Watch this webinar recording to understand the highlights, timing, and key changes planned for ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and other key sector standards being updated with these changes.

This webinar is presented by Mr. Chad Kymal, CTO of Omnex, who is a member of the Technical Committees TC 176 and TC 207. Chad is also active in all the three sector standards.
